(Steilacoom, WA)  --  Taxpayers may end up paying for part of the recent Amtrak Cascades derailment near Steilacoom.  KING TV says the Washington and Oregon departments of transportation claim the Amtrak train engineer caused the derailment by approaching an unlocked drawbridge too fast.  Amtrak says it's not responsible for the 100-thousand-dollar insurance deductible.  Cascades trains are operated by Amtrak but funded by Oregon and Washington.  The damaged train is awaiting repair.  The engineer is suspended as an investigation continues.
